Liverpool: Amazing Season

The quadruple dream is over for Liverpool. Having already lifted the League Cup and FA Cup trophies, for a time on Sunday it looked like the Reds would win the Premier League title too. Trailing Manchester City by one point going into the final round, Liverpool watched Aston Villa score twice on the road against the Citizens. The Reds managed to beat Wolves 3-1 but the Citizens scored three times in six minutes to beat Steven Gerrard and co. City’s victory meant they were crowned champions of England for the fourth time in five years.

Jurgen Klopp might have missed out on the Premier League crown, but victory this weekend would secure a brilliant cup treble and give Liverpool the edge over City in terms of overall achievements this term. Liverpool may have shown signs of tiredness of late, but despite allowing first in each of their final four Premier League fixtures, they still managed to collect ten points in the process.

Ahead of the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, revenge is on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah's mind. He hasn’t forgotten what went down in the 2018 final against Real Madrid in Kyiv. The painful moment happened in the first half when Sergio Ramos tackled him as he landed heavily on the ground, dislocating his left shoulder.

Liverpool is fully packed with world-class attacking players and Jurgen Klopp added some extra value to his attacking line by signing Luis Diaz in January. Unfortunately, they also have some injury issues. Last weekend against Wolves, Thiago recognized a problem in his leg and called for a substitution, limping off to the sidelines. His injury was described as not serious and Jurgen Klopp declared he’s positive Thiago will be fit for the final. Fabinho resumed training on Wednesday in a boost for Jurgen Klopp ahead of the Champions League final. This is the most important match of the season for both teams and it’s difficult to predict the outcome.

Real Madrid: Hollywood Script

The Champions League always has been and always will be Real Madrid’s competition. It is in the club’s DNA to fight until the death, especially in this, the most glorious European competition. During this UCL campaign, Los Blancos were the underdogs in their last three knock-out ties against PSG, Chelsea, and Man City. They miraculously produced three amazing comebacks including the most dramatic one against the Citizens.

They have been crowned La Liga champions, but their European campaign defies both belief and description after a series of sensational comebacks. They have been grateful to Karim Benzema’s superb campaign, while youngster Rodrygo has been the very definition of a hero in the most important games.

Real Madrid wants to quickly forget about Kylian Mbappe and turn its focus back on the Champions League final. Four days before the most important game of the season, everyone in Real Madrid’s camp tried their best to avoid talking about the French forward and his decision to stay with Paris Saint-Germain. Ancelotti, who can become the first coach to reach five UCL finals, will have Madrid at full strength on Saturday.

Champions League Prediction

The ‘Alex Classic’ (Both teams score and over 2.5 goals in the match) has failed to cash in three consecutive finals. However, that side cashed in eight straight finals before that run of three. All of the last three finals have stayed under 2.5 goals, with 10 of the last 21 seeing a maximum of two goals as well.

Finals involving Spanish sides tend to produce more goals. In the last 10 UCL finals featuring at least one La Liga club, there has been an average of 3.4 goals per contest. We are talking about two of the best attacking teams in Europe but we will just take the overs in the second half and not the full game.

If you’re betting the trends, four of the last five favorites lifted the trophy with Chelsea being the only exception in 2021. The Reds enter this clash as favorites being priced at +115 with Unibet while Real Madrid is priced at +240.

Alex Campean has been a soccer fan since 1990 when he watched the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy. He knows everything about the top 5 European leagues, Champions League and Europa League and he is well known for his “trade-mark” “Alex Classic” bet (both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match). He’s very disciplined, follows a strict set of rules, and has great bankroll management. He’s our European soccer specialist and he's having an average of 55 units of profit in the last 7 years with his soccer picks. He’s all about positive energy, respect, and long-term profit and if you ever hear “Alex’s last-minute goal” that means he did it again winning a bet in the last minute of the game, so never lose hope.
